Denver has a great...

What about winter months? My team has some 1s and 2s and we ride real mellow/moderate mid-winter. Base miles. Most pros agree you don't hammer in the middle of winter. It's not good for the...

Things I say NEVER consume:
1. Soda/softdrinks
2. Trans-fats (watch some of the "healthy" bread labels)

I train about 10 hours a week and am a pretty decent cat 3. You don't need much more than that unless you want to actually be competitive in the 123 races. The key is to train right on a macro and...
